  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Montreal sits atop the Eastern Conference, 30 points from 16 matches and the best points per game in MLS (1.88).
  • Despite that first place position, the Impact have won just one of their last four games, and needed to mount a comeback against Canadian rival Toronto FC to grab a point after going down 3-1.
  • Chivas USA is last in the Western Conference, with just 13 points from 17 games. It is just one of three MLS clubs averaging less than a point per game.
  • Since firing Jose Luis "El Chelis" Sanchez Sola on May 30, the Goats are yet to win a game in any competition, with a combined 0-4-2 record in league and cup play.
  • In the only previous meeting between these sides, on June 20, 2012, Chivas defeated Montreal 2-1 in California.
